The smallest of wild creatures
Come to say hello
Early one morning I heard a very high-pitched twittering coming from outside the window.
Although I couldn’t see him from my position in the room, I knew he was a male Lesser Double-Collared Sunbird proclaiming his territory.
He was in the honeysuckle planted right underneath the window, but if I stepped closer to try to see him, he would instantly fly away.
So I grabbed camera phone and keeping well back out of sight, I very carefully sneaked my hand past the curtains. Shooting blind, I clicked.
This is what I got.
A beautiful Sunbird drinking nectar from the honeysuckle.
What a treat.
